...There is a lot of love between these two beautiful soon-to-be parents...

...The way they look at each other makes your heart just skip a beat...well, more that a few beats...

...It is a very romantic love...Those longing stares and a slight blushes...

..sigh...I love that...

...He just simply adores her...

...You can just feel the love between them...It is amazing...

...This is one lucky baby...And they are so excited to meet him too...

...It was an absolute pleasure taking these photos and I cannot wait to meet their new baby boy and photograph the three of them as a new family...

...You will see new photos of them again in a few weeks:)...I can't wait!...

Okay...I don't even know really what to say...this photo shoot was SO much fun...It took place at the Glacier Club and it was the perfect day...This family was so laid back (and absolutely not-fair-gorgeously-stunning) and just trusted me completely to photograph my way & to do what I do...I am honored they chose me to photograph their family...I am always honored when a family chooses me...It is so special when they allow me into their home and are so warm and welcoming and excited for me to take photographs of them...how lucky am I? Seriously...

...They brought out the works too: horse swing, tennis, basketball, baseball, longboards, jump ropes, bubbles, ice cream with sprinkles, swimming pool...phew...they love everything! It was fantastic!

...and I had the hardest time narrowing these images down to just a few as there are SO many more, but I decided to leave the majority as surprises for their gallery...

...I love all of the images so much that they are going to be a featured gallery on my website...so you can see the entire session soon too & I will let you know when it is ready to view...

...Here are a few of my favorite images that show a little insight into the day we had...

...and p.s.: these sisters have the best sibling bond ever...It made my heart melt to see them love each other so very much as I thought of my own daughters and how they might be like this when they are that age...and I can only imagine how protective these cuties will be over their little brother (who was way too cute for words)...oh boy~watch out...

...To their mom & dad:  your gallery will be ready soon...enjoy this sneak peek of your little cutie pies! Wait until you see the rest too...you are gonna LOVE them...and the basket shot is amazing...don't you hate that I am teasing you so much...I just couldn't dare post more as I have to save them for your full gallery...I am so mean...and I think you are definitely going to have a hard time deciding...:)...definitely...especially since I did...

Oh, to be a kid again...

..We, along with our very close friends and their two boys, took the girls to the zoo in Albuquerque this past weekend and it was so much fun...They had their faces painted by a clown that was at the hotel (who is there every Fri and Sat night while happy hour is on for the parents:))...and she made them swords out of balloons too...it was too darn cute...and I don't even like clowns, so that says a lot...And of course, Addi had to be a little princess...

...We planned on doing a lot more those two days too, but they are still so young and had meltdowns pretty early on, so we had to skip the aquarium and botanical gardens...we'll save those for another get-away-weekend I guess...

...They loved the zoo too...this gorgeous lion came right up to the window, looked at all 4 kids and then sat down right in front of them...they LOVED that...

...If we had a zoo here, I would do photo shoots there all the time as it is a perfect place to capture a child's every emotion...

...So, here are just a few photos as I really did just try to enjoy the moments with my family and friends rather than document the entire trip with my camera...

...as requested by my hubby, so I thought I would indulge him this time...

...plus, it is HARD when you are trying to photograph your own children while watching them at the same time AND trying to be creative...hey, I am not perfect...

The other day we drove up to our home and there they were...a flock of plastic flamingos...

We were SO confused...how in the world did they get there?

It turns out that our good friend paid to have them put in our front yard...it was a fundraiser for one of the local schools and the flock of flamingos were migrating all through town to other people's lawns too...So, we only had them there for one day, but it was SO great because the girls got such a kick out of it! Thank you Jarod!  We love you!

We also have just been having fun in the gorgeous warm weather here...I love the summer time...

Okay, I will keep this short as I have many photos to edit from recent sessions and I am still waiting on the arrival of all the newborn sessions I have coming up...I wonder if their parents are as antsy as I am?:)

Lots of love & have a beautiful beautiful beautiful day!

This family was TOO stinkin' cute, okay...TOO stinkin' gorgeous....

I had so much fun with them as soon as I stepped into their home...

Little ~p~ and Little ~n~ were hilarious and were SO into having their photos taken... I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT!

We did just about everything you could do...played hungry hungry hippo, read books in their rooms, jumped on all the beds, chased the cat, played basketball, rode the bicycle-skateboard & scooter, jumped on the trampoline, played in the play house, slid down the slide, played on the swings...what am I missing?...?...I know there was something else too...They have so much energy...WOW...

...And I was so sore when I arrived at the photo shoot as I had a very intense workout session that morning, so I really had to step it up when I realized what I was in for...

And their mom is so sweet & way too beautiful...you can see how much they love each other too...

That is what I love about my job so much...I get to get a little sneak peek into a family's life and capture that moment...the love, the joy, the laughter...All of it...The hugs, the holding hands, those "looks" that kids give their parents...you know the one I am talking about...:)...They are all what make a family...How am I so lucky? I am so grateful families let me into their lives to do this for them...It is amazing...

And I have SO many more images that I want to post, but I want them to be a surprise for their full gallery...oohhhh...can't wait!!

xoxo-h
